Clairol’s Consulting Colourist Luis Pacheco tells us how to protect our locks from winter weather.
• The most important thing of all is to protect your hair from the elements as much as possible and invest in a good deep conditioner that you’ll use once a week. Never leave the house with wet hair in sub-zero temperatures and always cover your hair.
• Avoid harsh colourants like highlights and opt to enhance your natural beauty instead. Re-acquaint yourself with your natural colour—it’s what will suit you best!
• If you’re planning to go south for the winter, plan backwards to have your colour done just before you go away. Beware blondes with highlights and lowlites! Sun, sea salt and chlorine can cause lowlites to go brassy and damage freshly bleached highlights. Do only your roots before going away and you can do the rest when you get back.
• Between the cold and dry air, hair really takes a beating in the winter. Give your hair a rest over the winter months and opt for less damaging colouring choices such as a demi-permanent that are ammonia-free and contain antioxidants and vitamins.
